  • Answer 50 questions in 15 minutes.
  • If you are not ready to take this test, you can study here.
  • Match each statement with the correct term.
  • Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.

This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it re-enforces your understanding as you take the test each time.

2. A histogram - ordered by frequency of occurrence - that shows how many results were generated by each identified cause

4. Centralized management of one or more portfolios - which includes identifying - prioritizing - authorizing - managing and controlling projects - programs and related work - to achieve specific strategic business objectives

11. An organizational placement strategy where the project team members are physically located close to one another in order to improve communication - working relationships and productivity

12. The time in calendar units between the start and finish of a schedule activity

13. Planning technique used to provide products - services and results that truly reflect customer requirements by translating those customer requirements into the appropriate technical requirements for each phase of project product development

14. Logical relationship where initiation of the work of the successor schedule activity depends upon the initiation of the work of the predecessor schedule activity

15. Compares technical accomplishments during project execution to the project management plan's schedule of planned technical achievements.

16. Evaluation of whether or not a product - service - or system complies with a regulation - requirement - specification or imposed condition.

17. Budgeted cost of work scheduled

20. A point that is not settled or is under discussion or over which there are opposing views or disagreements

21. Calendar of working days or shifts that establishes those dates on which schedule activities are worked and nonworking days that determine those dates on which schedule activities are idle

22. A specific technique for measuring the performance of work and used to establish the performance measurement baseline

23. An information gathering technique used as a way to reach a consensus of experts on a subject. experts on the subject participate in the technique anonymously. a facilitator uses a questionnaire to solicit ideas about the important project points rel

24. The smallest unit of time used in scheduling a project. calendar units are generally in hours - days - or weeks - but can also be in quarters years - months - shifts - or even minutes

25. The process of obtaining seller responses - selecting a seller and awarding a contract

26. Calculation of the early start and early finish dates for the uncompleted portions of all network activities

27. Information system consisting of tools and techniques to gather - integrate and disseminate the outputs of project management processes.

28. The area on either side of the centerline - or mean - of data plotted on a control chart that meets the customer's requirements for a product or service.

29. Analytical technique that uses three cost or duration estimates to represent optimistic - most likely and pessimistic scenarios.

30. Analysis. a statistical technique that calculates the average outcome when the future includes scenarios that may or may not happen. used in decision tree analysis.

31. Estimate or prediction of conditions and events in the projects future based on information and knowledge available at the time of the forecast. information is based on the project's past performance and expected future performance

32. Documents and data on prior project including project files - records - correspondence - closed contracts - and closed projects

33. Risk response planning technique for a threat that creates changes to the project management plan that are meant to either eliminate the risk or to protect the project objectives from its impact.

34. Schedule network diagramming technique in which schedule activities are represented by boxes or nodes. schedule activities are graphically linked by one or more logical relationships to show the sequence in which the activities are performed

35. Features and functions that characterize a product - service or result

36. A request - demand or assertion of rights by a seller against a buyer or vice versa for consideration - compensation - or payment under the terms of a legally binding contract (such as for a disputed change)

37. The latest possible point in time that a schedule activity may begin based upon the schedule network logic - the project completion date and any constraints assigned to schedule activities without violating schedule constraint or delaying project com

39. Formally documented change request that is submitted for approval to the integrated change control process

40. A group of related projects managed in a coordinated way to obtain benefits and control not available from managing them individually.

42. Tracking - reviewing - regulating the progress to meet the performance objectives defined in the project management plan

43. Project schedule compression that changes network logic to overlap phases that would normally be done in sequence

44. A source of variation that is inherent in the system and predictable. on a control chart - it appears as part of the random process variation and is indicated by random pattern of points within the control limits. also referred to as random cause

45. Buyer pays the seller a set amount (as defined by the contract) and the seller can earn an additional amount if the seller meets defined performance criteria

46. Calculated projection of cost performance that must be achieved on the remaining work to meet a specified management goal. ratio of remaining work to funds remaining

47. Area of project management defined by its knowledge requirements and described in terms of its component processes - practices - inputs - outputs - tools and techniques

48. Collection of generally sequential - non overlapping product phases whose name and number are determined by the manufacturing and control needs of the organization.

49. Risk that arises as a direct result of implementing a risk response

50. Expected cost needed to complete all the remaining work for a schedule activity - work breakdown structure component or project.
